Mrs. Natalie Smoak

My name is Natalie Smoak and I am the Reading Specialist at Heritage.  I graduated from the University of North Alabama in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I achieved National Board Certification in 2017 and 2022 in the area of Early Middle Childhood Literacy.   I have taught third grade, fourth grade, as well as five years as an Instructional Partner/Reading Coach in Madison City Schools.  This 2022-2023 school year marks the beginning of my 23rd year teaching in Madison City Schools! 

I am married to Bill Smoak who is a fifth-grade math teacher in Madison City Schools at Rainbow Elementary. When we aren't teaching we enjoy traveling with our son, Anderson.  I especially love all things Disney and spend my free time reading.
